Insanity of Motherhood

Motherhood, marriage, and midlife.



A conversation between a mother and a father.

Mother and father are sitting at dinning room table talking after dinner. Mother looks about and notices children are not around.

“It’s awfully quiet. Where is everybody?” – Mother

“The big boys are in their room.  Not sure where the little guy is.” – Father

Mother and father look at each other with panicked faces.

“I’ll look for him this way.  You go that way.” – Father

Mother and father walk away from kitchen to search for little boy.  After a few minutes father approaches mother.

“Come here.  You won’t believe it.” – Father

“Oh no.” – Mother

Father leads mother to little boy’s bedroom.  Mother looks around room and notices little boy.  Little boy is lying in his bed asleep.  Lights are on.

“Wow.” – Mother (whispers)

“Wow is right.” – Father (whispers)

“It’s a miracle.” – Mother (whispers)

Mother and father walk out of the bedroom and turn out the light.  Mother gives father a big hug and father gives mother a high-five slap on the hand.

“We don’t have to put the little guy to bed.  We have the evening free to do what we want.  First time EVER,” – Father (big smile)

” It’s a miracle.  A true blue spectacle.  The miracle is you.” – Mother (singing)

  3. My little nephew, then four, said to me once, ” I think I’ll just rest my eyes for a minute.” Hallelujah.

  4. We referred to those times as “Glory Days” as in “Glory hallelujah we have some free time!!”

  5. Now that is a treat. Night is your own – sweet.
